Fleetwood Town boss Uwe Rosler says transfer targets are not just a festive thought but a year-round process.

The head coach revealed the club is already starting to find targets for both the January and summer windows.

And that is evident with Town featuring four trialists in Paul Murray’s development squad’s 2-0 win over Morecambe in midweek.

Rosler said: “I think we would not be doing our jobs if we were not starting working towards targets in January or next summer already.

“I think as a football club in general Gretar Steinsson (technical director) and (chief scout) Steve Davis are looking.

“That will not stop it is an ongoing process we are primarily looking to improve our squad for next summer.”

And Rosler is pleased with the feedback he has received on Nathan Sheron who is under the guidance of Chorley boss Matt Jansen on a youth loan.

He is also happy with how Nick Haughton is getting on at Chorley’s National League North rivals Salford City.

Rosler said: “He (Sheron) needs fitness, he needs match fitness and as a centre-half he needs to get pushed and bruised and kicked around on that level.

“I think the boy can play from the back that is for sure and I think that suits the way I think we should play.

“I look forward to hearing more good news; so far I have only heard good news.

“We have him on a 28-day recall; I think at some point we will call him back and get him back in our training.

“I think he is in good hands there with good people and experienced people.

“I think that is a good move for him and for Nick Haughton as well because he is doing well and that is good for us.”
